Correct, but quite a few apps give you the option where to store data generated by the app in other locations. If the app is creating a lot of data naturally one would want that stored to the removable media source. I have ran across this in a several different scenarios, the following being the most recent. It could totally be an issue with specific apps not being properly coded and I am sure it is but this may explain my question a bit better.
Auto Call Recorder
(works like a dream) gives you the ability to select the location to save your audio files. The lowest level directory being /sdcard as the app has no root permissions making it impossible to reach the emmc folder. If /sdcard/external_sd was linked to /mnt/emmc this would solve the "compatibility" issue.
So I guess my question is has anyone else not had similar issues arise? Would anyone happen to know a work around for this? Have I just under looked and over thought?
